He decided to take today off to relax with Dikembe Mutombo, Random Turkey, and Science the Bear on the slopes of Mount Doom.

That's more fun, isn't it?





Anyone else want to give it a try? Template below:

"Zibanejad still missing? Seems like... [insert your own adventure here]"
I think he's Santa Claus and needs to prepare for giving gifts to children around the world.

He was "out" last year too in the SEL around this time of the month.

Basically what the OP is stating is that if Bishop walks at the end of the year because he has the option too. ANDDDDD there are an enormous amount of teams that would pay a big price for him on the open market - that 2nd rounder becomes a waste.

I don't think it was a huge waste but it is pretty crappy that we cant get ful value of a 2nd rounder.

But worst things have happened. Ppl overpay a great deal to load up for playoffs, all we did was give up a 2nd rounder for a goalie.
GMs can't manage their teams expecting a lockout. If there wasn't yet another freaking lockout, everything would be set perfectly and Bishop would be raising his value in the NHL while Lehner continues his development in the AHL.

Something people quickly forget is that Lehner is ONLY 21 y/o... Look at the age Europeans goalie start to play regularly in the NHL (Hasek, Lundqvist, Rinne, Rask, Kiprusoff, Backstrom, Markstrom...)

Is Robin Lehner supposed to be better than all of them? Oh ya, hopefully he doesn't become "just" a Lundqvist. I mean the guy is soft mentally, etc.

And this :

I mean... how many of those golden prospects can we afford to have? Would you litterally sacrifice Alfie to have 53 additional prospects? There's only 20 spots on a team, not all our prospects will make it and some will have to be traded to have a chance to play in the NHL. That's how ridiculous our depht will be

Sometimes you have to spend your money... Acquiring a FULLY developped goalie (they take time and $$$ to develop) for a 2nd round pick is GREAT VALUE. You are JUMPING 4-5 years of development. That's worth a lot in the real world. I don't understand how can people don't see that.

Bishop was just 25 y/o and has dominated the AHL for a while. And what are the chances the 2nd becomes better than Bishop? We did very well with our 2nds lately but a 2nd is a 2nd... it only has incommensurable value on HF... Sometimes, Dominic Moore is what you can get at the deadline for a 2nd...

Do you guys realize you are whining about a goalie that is 6-2-1 with a 928% SV???

lulz

For a kid who is "getting to know North American ice", I love seeing that. Skill to snipe + mentality to get dirty = effective scorer.

Not in my mind, but you very well could be right about how management felt. I definitely had both of those guys ahead of DaCosta in the not to distant past, but then again Im not a scout so I can admit that was likely the armchair GM in me looking at stats and junior accomplishments. Its a different game from junior to pro.

I always take guys with an impressive college resume with a grain of salt, not really expecting anything beyond a depth player who can fill in when the going gets rough (a la Bobby Buttler). I can see DaCosta being the real deal, and sticking in NHL in a meaningful role.

Judging by the highlights, our guys exploited a weakness of the goalie stick side. Good coaching FTW!

Here's the original pic, so people aren't confused further. I must say Zibby looks better than Waldo. The ladies are trading up.
